@ChristopherFritz - did you work out how to remove the page numbers from the top-level items?

comment Bibtex saying I am missing a field name in @unpublished
No, if you do that with a .bst that capitalises the title, you end up with something that reads "GENESIS OF Bayesian ANALYSIS: EXCHANGEABILITY AND DE Finetti's THEOREM" which is clearly wrong. What is the disadvantage to what I wrote?

Better to write "Genesis of {B}ayesian ...". Some obscure .bsts capitalise the whole title.

comment Superscript page numbers with natbib
This breaks in XeLaTeX when certain fonts (e.g. some versions of Linux Libertine) are used with the xltxtra package. The solution then is to replace \textsuperscript in the definitions of \NAT@citesuper with \textsuperscript*. Note this will then break if the use of xltxtra is removed.

@JosephWright. I suspect it's the only citation format many people will have encountered as it's the format used on Wikipedia.

comment Changing style of Proof
You cannot use \textit or \textbf because they're block-level and you need the bold effect to propagate beyond the \oldproofname (which is 'Proof' in English) so that the full stop is also in bold. TeX's modal \rm and \bf commands do that. It might have been better had I used \upshape\bfseries instead of \rm\bf as they're the LaTeX versions, but to be honest, I don't see a big difference.
